• MCSA

    Midlothian ISD has an agreement with Navarro College, Tarleton State University, and Texas A&M Commerce that allows selected high school students to earn an Associate’s Degree via dual credit through these colleges. Midlothian Collegiate Scholars Academy (MCSA) allows selected incoming 9th graders to begin earning roughly 60 Dual Credit Hours during their four years of high school and graduate with an Associate’s Degree. MCSA students continue to be a part of their high school campus. They will have the same opportunities for extracurricular activities and experiences as their classmates. 

    Current 8th grade students may be considered for entry into the Midlothian Collegiate Scholars Academy by a process which will include a student application, academic excellence, and panel interview.
